He thought that even though we have everything we need to be happy, but without being able to think for ourselves, we’re not truly happy. Right then, a new door reveals itself to Montag. In part three of Fahrenheit 451, Montag realizes that he is putting himself and Mildred in danger by returning a book to Beatty in order to trick him. After all, Beatty knows that Montag have books and he already hints that Montag have 24 hours to burn them or the firemen will come to Montag’s house and burn them for him. Then Montag went and did the worst thing possible, he read a poem to Mildred’s friends, Mrs. Phelps and Mrs. Bowles.
Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 41 is a book based on the government that's taking away books and how people will have different opinions on it people who would want books and read them and learn and some people don't care but the government doesn't want the books so they have theses firemen that if the people have books hidden they would get their house burn down. Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 41 the fire men are burning down houses that have books inside because of the government doesn't want the people to be educated. First of all in the story of Fahrenheit it’s there is this man name guy montag he is one of the the main character he is a firemen who starts the fire and what i mean is that in this world you can not have books there are not allowed for one reason only and that's to not make the people the children the elders educated.

First of all in the book People are not allowed to have books in the town because the government does not want to have people educated and to learn.
Montag broke the law multiple times and tried to change society and made people afraid. He was also justified in taking montages earpiece so he could track down faber so they could stop illegal activities. This relates to mccarthyism because the us government did these same things to stop the spread of communism. The us was full of spies that leaked information and it makes sense why Beatty would want to stop Faber. Historians at the history channel state that the government use the hollywood ten as a example of communism spreading in America.
Although the leaders of the country are right to hide information on the basis of ensuring the safety of the citizens, there is information they keep stowed away in order to prevent an uproarious rebellion. Such a dramatic response could lead to a possibly dangerous shift in power, and the fall of the entire democracy. The American government is trying to protect its people, but in reality, it is only evoking a defiant response with detrimental consequences. The idea that one’s private information must be secure at all costs has swept the globe and has inspired a hysteria of ludicrous terror, according to writer David Plotz in his essay “Privacy in Overrated”. Yet, there are valid reasons on why such a terror is not absurd, but practical.
Inside of this fictional nation, existent in the 24th Century, books have been banned, firemen start fires, instead of fighting them, and people don’t casually converse. One man, Guy Montag, who is the story’s main character, is a fireman who burns not only illicit books, but the buildings he finds them in. He and other firemen all burn books because the government tells them to. By banning books, and telling them what to think, the government obtains and maintains control over the populous, and they use brutal punishments to enforce that standard. The government bans books to maintain control of citizens.
Guy Montag from fahrenheit 451 and Truman Burbank from from the Truman Show have similarities and differences. Guy and Truman both wanted changes in their society. Truman did not know that everyone was watching him. Guy Montag was a fireman who destroyed people's houses and the problem was he had no choice because his boss ordered him to burn the houses because of owning books. Guy did not like the idea of burning houses because of owning books.
Montag rebels against everything he knows to gain knowledge that he is not able to gain by the law. Montag also has ideas on how to overthrow the firemen. The largest act of Montag being an anti hero is killing his boss to stop the burning of books. He switched the safety catch on the flamethrower. Bradbury states, “.”Beatty glanced instantly at Montag's fingers and his eyes widened the faintest bit.” Montag is extremely curious about books, and the idea of freedom that it drives him crazy.
In the book Fahrenheit 451 books are outlawed and illegal to own. In the book, an english professor by the name of Faber helps Montag, a fireman in the world of Fahrenheit 451, that his job is to burn books because they are illegal to possess. Montag decides to make a risky decision and read a book and he doesn’t really understand the meaning of the book. So he decides to seek help to understand the history regarding books and why they are illegal in their society. Faber gives three very important reasons of what is missing in their society that is causing them to not want to read books.
In conclusion, the thought of censoring in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is plainly idiotic. It suppresses the message Mark Twain is trying to send by, as Hetert-Qebu Walters says, “changes are another form of censorship, seeking to gloss over the complexities of life during a horrific period in American history.” therefore destroying the meaning of the novel. Children will not be tainted by the words used because they know why the words are used, because of education and the fact that they plainly won’t bat and eye at the words. People such as publishers who wish to reprint the book with censored words have no respect for literature and just care about printing more copies for more money. With all of this said I cannot help but to agree with Walters when she says, “choose an edition of Huckleberry Finn that respects the words of Twain as he wrote them & his critique of our nation 's history”.
This could lead to danger because he could leak more top secret files from the U.S. government that could eventually cause fright to the public, putting society on edge. The whole point of having a government is to lead and guide the public of the United States away from any danger or commotion that could be currently happening over the nation. Snowden should not be trusted and if anything, he should be feared for his defiance of the laws of the United States. Edward is not above the law and it is unjust that he has not gone to jail for an illegal task he had
’For your file,’ he said, ‘in case you decide to be angry with me.’"(Bradbury, page 71). Faber is asking to get his house burnt to a crisp, but montag decide not to turn him into his higher ups. This society scares people that break the rules so much that they turn themselves in. This society makes people feel guilty for reading books. In the real world, society does something similar to this, just with opinions and not books.
MIS Book Council Midtown International School should not create a book advisory council. Censoring books can create a bad vibe that can lead to drugs and pornography. Press is also being limited about serious topics that could save lives. The book advisory council would counteract the constitutions first amendment. Finally if you don 't tell the kids what is happening in the bad things somewhere in the world then they will not understand right from wrong.
Imagine a world where books are illegal and firemen start fires instead of putting them out. A fireman named Montag lives in this world. Montag originally agreed with the laws against books but eventually broke them himself. Mildred eventually becomes sick of having the books in her house and breaking the law so she turns in an alarm against him. Montag then runs away and find the “book people” and live with them in the free community.
As this nation grows and develops these beliefs don’t seem to be as valuable as they used to be. A Report from the PEN Center states, “76% think that increased government surveillance is especially harmful to writers because it impinges upon the privacy they need to create freely.” Presently, seventy to eighty percent of the books banned in the United States are never reported. America is a free country, but do you really have the freedom to say and do anything you want? Why then does the government watch your every move and regulates what works of literature you 're allowed and not allowed to access. By censoring critical literature via the very governmental organizations created to do such things, the government deprives its citizens of intellectual freedom, development, and speech leading to a dysfunctional educational system that fosters a biased and discriminatory society.
In the book, 63 Documents The Government Doesn’t Want You To Read, it explains how the government keeps so much information from us, the American people. The book is a great one for the American people at whole and should be used to open the minds of the Americans. It describes actual incriminating documents the government tries to hide from Americans. As well as programs that show how un- American government officials really are. Jesse Ventura, an actor, pro wrestler, and later a politician that became the governor of Minnesota, wrote the book 63 Documents The Government Doesn’t Want You To Read, along with Dick Russel as a coauthor.
